DRAMA - A homicide investigation has been opened A mother was taken into custody on Tuesday in Lorient after the suspicious death of her seven-year-old child, reports Ouest-France .

After the announcements about the festivals, the organizers of La Route du Rock and No Logo BZH are staying the course. If they resolve to limit the gauge to 5,000 people, having a seated audience seems incompatible with the spirit of a contemporary music festival.

"Neither hot nor cold!" " In short, this is the reaction of the organizers of festivals in Saint-Malo following announcements by the Minister of Culture , Roselyne Bachelot, about festivals. “I have a feeling she spoke under pressure from the unions. She had to give a bit of fat, analyzes François Floret, manager of the Route du Rock , near Saint-Malo . But I don't blame the Government. Who can predict what will happen in the summer? »

Sitting in front of a punk concert?

The director of the event dedicated to independent music was already working on an edition cut out for a tonnage of 5,000 spectators. But he is not resigned to imagining the festival-goers seated. “How can you imagine remaining seated in front of a punk, garage rock or electro concert? This is not viable for most festivals. »

Michel Jovanovic, the director of No Logo , a festival which also takes place at Fort Saint-Père, a week before the Route du Rock, is on the same wavelength. “These proposals are far from sufficient. You can adapt and organize yourself according to a limited gauge. But the sitting position is incompatible with the music that we defend. A festival of classical music or seated jazz is possible. But our audience is not going to sit for six or seven hours in front of reggae concerts ”.

Wait and hope for a lull

To date, the two organizers are continuing their work, hoping that these instructions will change. Michel Jovanovic places a lot of hope in the proposal of to organize two weekends to test the outdoor concerts. "I hope our proposal will be validated to offer standing festivals this summer. Adaptations are possible. We must continue the dialogue. "

François Floret is counting on his " eternal optimism " to get the sliders moving by this summer. "I am in favor of waiting and hoping for a lull. One can also hope that the vaccines produce effects. I still hope to organize a festival with 5,000 standing spectators and a suitable catering service. "

The two Saint-Malo festivals are working in this direction anyway.
